2021 has been a tough year for the healthcare industry with a high number of data breaches and a large number of exposed health records as hackers escalated their attacks on healthcare providers and ransomware actors were unleashed. The HHS Civil Rights Office has continued to impose a large number of fines on Covered Entities and Business Associates for non-compliance with HIPAA rules, even during the pandemic. The trend over the past year has been to focus on HIPAA right-to-access violations, and many of the fines have been levied against smaller healthcare practices.

The webinar will cover:

  • Data breaches and fines in 2021 (what caused them, who was affected, etc.)

  • Predictions of what will happen in the future and what to watch out for
